Immigration is a hot topic, and this heart-wrenching saga of one family's struggle as migrants is exciting and realistic. Daniel Aleman paints a well-detailed portrait of New York City, by turns magical and harrowing. Meteo, his sister, and their friends and family are brought vividly to life. The choices available to Mateo are difficult, but he faces them with courage and empathy. This novel is rich in incident and relatable to a wide range of readers. Aleman makes an impressive debut.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
